For Some Aggies, Snow is a First

Winter officially hit the Brazos Valley, and for some Texas A&M University students, it was an experience they'll never forget.

"The first time I've ever seen snow live, ever, ever," said Texas A&M student Karen Miranda.

Wednesday evening Miranda and a friend gave snowman-making a whirl, in College Station.

"Its amazing, I've been screaming the whole day. I've been dancing in the road the whole day," said Miranda.

Miranda was not the only college student in town who had never seen the white stuff in person.

"When I go to Colorado, and I don't go to Colorado, so I guess on television or on the internet," said Texas A&M student Erin-Elise Wilson.

Despite the snow there were plenty of drivers on the road Wednesday evening, perhaps some of them were college students.

"Finals ended today for a lot of people, a lot of people wanna head out of town," said Wilson.

For many Aggies, navigating roads in the snow was a new experience.

"Its kinda crazy out here, just trying to take it slow and not hydroplane. Never really drove in snow before, first time ever, little bit scared," said Texas A&M student Peter Onarheim.

However, the Aggies News 3 spoke with said they weren't chancing it for long.

"I'll probably just stay home tonight, stay warm," said Onarheim.

"Like everyone else, its snowy, we want to get home and have some hot cocoa or something," said Wilson.
